Concept & Choreography Idan Sharabi
Discovering the power of listening, the piece “Ella” is a structure that aims to be unfolded and performed slightly differently each night. It was originally created in Holland in the spring and this fall, it was recreated with the New Dialect dancers. In the process, we focused our research on sound and its movement. The dancers were introduced to different improvisation technologies through which sound could become a traveling entity within their bodies. As the process evolved, listening to their bodies became crucial and gradually, moving had become a channel. Performing Ella, means taking a chance to dance through this channel, while listening to the “now” inside the concrete matter of the body and the choreographed matter in the mind. We are here, at this moment, sharing it with you.
